New Vocabulary

I was telling my kids that I have two studentsĀ that stutter. Ada asked what stuttering was, so I did my best to describe it. I said, “It is when a person tries to say something but the same sound comes out over and over, like st-st-st-st-st-stutter”

Ada says, “So they are trying to rap?”


Doughnut Day

Wednesday morning we head to Cub to buy doughnuts on the way to school. Ada always gets chocolate topped ones, and almost every week when we get to her school we have to hug awkwardly because she has chocolate on her cheek.

Today, Liam’s mother told him that his soccer shorts were at my house, and so he looked for them from 6:40 to 7:05 before we were notified that were actually at his mother’s.

So, being late, I skipped going to Cub. The kids never said anything in the car about it. When we got to Ada’s school, I noticed a bit of dirt on her cheek. I asked her what it was and she said, “Well, it isn’t chocolate from Doughnut Day.”
